Scan Results and Podcast Debut!

On Wednesday, October 16, Lizzy had another set of scans.  She will have these scans every 3 months for the next 2 years.

So, on Wednesday, we made the familiar trek up to Cincinnati to see our good friends at Cincinnati Children’s.  Lizzy had an ultrasound, a CT scan, blood work and a flu shot!  We also met with Dr. Geller so he could examine her.  By the time everything finished and we drove back home, we had gotten the results of the ultrasound and the blood work – everything was clear and normal!

The CT results, on the other hand, had not come back by the time we got home.  Dr. Geller had given us a preliminary read and said he didn’t see anything suspicious, but he needed the radiologist to read it to make it official.  For some reason still unknown to us, it took over 48 hours to get the CT results.  Finally, late yesterday (Friday) afternoon, the official CT scan results were posted – all clear!!!  Thank you God!!!

As we celebrated what is now 3 sets of clear scans in a row (end of treatment in March, July, October) we also celebrated our Podcast debut!

Our pastor, Kyle Idleman, has been a huge support to us on this journey and he has a podcast where he interviews various people to tell their story.  The podcast is called One At A Time by Kyle Idleman and is available on every platform that has podcasts.

Lori and I were very humbled and excited to get to share what God has done in our lives over the past 8 years during our adoption and cancer journeys.  So, if you want to hear directly from the horse’s mouth (and the beauty’s mouth), here is a link to the podcast page.  Our episode is in Season 2, an episode called Praying Big Prayers: Naming It on 10/15/19.

We hope you enjoy it!!

Lori’s Surgery is Scheduled

I think I forgot to post this information.  Lori’s surgery is scheduled for this Thursday (10/3) at 10:30am.  We’ve been told to plan on spending most of the day at the physician office.

Thank you again for all of your words of encouragement and support, and especially your prayers for Lori.

I’ll post again after the surgery is finished.
